Friday 4th December
The theme of the week has been all about Friendships. We have focussed on the book ‘On Sudden Hill’, which looks at the topic of friendship. The children have been busy this week creating paintings of their friends, making settings from the story and writing about their friends. We have talked about the characters and their feelings and what it is like to feel lonely.
Next week we are introducing the book ‘Blue Penguin’ and talking about Antarctica and animals that live there. Based on the story of the Blue Penguin we are transforming the role play area into Antarctica and decorated elements from the story.

The children have been very busy this week making and writing Christmas cards, writing wish lists and making paper chains. Santa’s workshop was very busy with Elves making lots of presents and writing names and labels so Santa would know where to deliver them!
Next week, we will delve into the book ‘Blue Penguin’ in more detail. We will read the text again but this time focussing on the feelings of the main character. We will be making information books about penguins and exploring the different ways we can find this information for example, internet, videos, pictures, books, magazines and so on.

For our Christmas Performance the children were fantastic performers and we are so proud of all of them. Please visit Whitings Hill Primary school website and you can find the performance in the Class Pages, then Christmas Videos ‘Santa’s Suitcase.’ Enjoy!
This week Blue Penguin has been very interesting. The children were able to share information with the rest of the class. The children labelled different parts of the penguin.
The children have been very busy making various Christmas decorations. We have been very impressed with the children’s cutting skills; they were able to cut a spiral Christmas tree. Santa’s workshop was very busy with Elves making lots of presents and writing names and labels so Santa would know where to deliver them!
